Core Memory, a non-profit arts organization based in southern Rhode Island, is organizing and hosting a series of house concerts beginning in September 2017. A distinguished group of professional musicians is looking forward to meeting you and presenting classical music and jazz in a relaxed, informal setting.
The concerts take place in a private home near a scenic mill pond in the village of Peace Dale. The venue is ideal for an evening of entertainment and fine music. The performance space is a large living room with a grand piano and comfortable seating.
Our concerts consistently earn rave reviews from guests:
“We were thrilled. The performance, the setting, and your hospitality were all magical.”
“Wonderful setting, great piano, and terrific young musicians. Bravo!”
“One of the most wonderful nights I have had since moving to the United States … an extraordinary evening.”
“The entire series has been a bit of a revelation for this small place in the world. Thank you very much for bringing such wonderful talent to our community.”
And from performing artists:
“The piano is just marvelous and the setting is perfect for a salon concert.”
“Your series is incredibly valuable for us as musicians. I feel lucky to be able to be part of the first season.”
To stay informed about our concert series, please sign up for our low-volume mailing list. You will receive one or two emails each month with information about upcoming concerts and other late-breaking news.
If you would like to make a reservation, please send us an email with your name(s) and the concert date(s) you want to attend. We want to encourage everyone to try this out, so there is no admission charge. To help defray our costs, we ask for a voluntary donation at each concert.
Core Memory relies on private communications and word of mouth to publicize our concerts. You can help us spread the word by sharing this web page with interested family and friends.
